Thanks for the reply. I have a system that is optimised for 2 channel reproduction. I am toying with expanding this to take in a centre and a sub and becoming 3.1, but my preference will always be 2 channel music on my Naim set up. I recently sold my CD player and now solely rely on streaming as my music source.
I would like to record 24 bit rips from my Blu-ray player that I will then be able to play on my streamer, I thought that the best way to do this would be to strip the audio component from the HDMI stream that I currently get from my Blu ray player, but I am open to alternative solutions..
